    so I have fallen hard into testing with Domri, Anarch of Bolas, and I really think the payoff is nice. Hes an extra mana per turn and an anthem effect. I feel like he fits really well here but I could see him being too slow or low impact.

    So for people talking about Counter spell in modern:


    Can you imagine having to play against a sultai control deck in modern with Assasssin's Trophy, Counter Spell, Push, Cryptic where you literally won't be able to resolve anything?


    No I cannot, because I would also have counters.


    `He would play spell snare and not care. I would love to be in those days though, so +1 to counterspell and sultai being good

    Can we get good non-mill dimir cards, please? and preferably not over-costed to high hell while we're at it?

    Creeping tar pit can handle planeswalkers, and the package of infernal reckonings plus steel sabotages can truly help. I have damping sphere swapping places with flaying tendrils sometimes though, so it depends on the vibe of the competitive atmosphere

    I think this is just what needs to happen. Players are going to start learning the KCI deck, as they very well should. Its a reaction to being unable to interact. So some of you will suffer through this new competitive metagame for a short while. I'm applauding shaheen Soorani for picking up KCI wholeheartedly though, as a blue player who plays other colors to learn the decks myself. This is what modern has made players do to be competitive, as the nature of the beast. So until we get a different environment more players with a background in combo loops and play-sequencing will likely pick up the deck, and maybe more people struggling to interact will learn how to play it, or how to beat it...but isnt that what we're here to do anyway?

    you will want engineered explosives and ratchet bomb if budget is a huge concern. Damnation is a big necessity for the match more often than not so the overall money for 2 Modern Masters versions may be well spent. otherwise up your spot removal count between maindeck and sideboard

    Modern players are also a lot more jovial from my own experience than most standard players that do the same type of thing. I mean, if you sat down and played a game vs IdSurge or purklefluff it's probably going to be a good experience.

    Isn't FoodChainGoblins on this list as well?


    I think there are definitely more of the mtgsal crew on that list. But yeah the people in your environment make modern an easier format to play in, even if games are a struggle.

    I am so excited to play Wizard's retort. All my nontoken creatures in faeries are wizards.

    If having required slots for sideboard is part of their banning, then why has affinity (the dredge of modern) had no bans for so long?


    Id venture a guess and say that its because those answers are very effective against affinity

    Thanks for all the work you did and all the help you've given us with the faeries primer.
